SFPD says suspicious package on Muni bus in Marina has been cleared

SAN FRANCISCO -- Streets are reopening after an investigation of a suspicious package on a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus shut down parts of the city's Marina District this afternoon.

Police received a report of a suspicious item on a bus in the area of Marina Boulevard and Laguna Street at 12:11 p.m., according to Officer Robert Rueca.

The bus was evacuated and vehicular and pedestrian traffic was closed off on Marina Boulevard between Laguna and Buchanan streets.

Residents and businesses in the area, including the nearby Safeway grocery store, were asked to shelter in place while police investigated.

No injuries were reported, and police have since determined the item is not hazardous.

Muni spokesman Paul Rose said the affected bus was at the terminal end of the 43-Masonic route.
