Hayward BART station reopens after suspicious package found

HAYWARD (KRON)–The Hayward BART station has reopened Monday night after a suspicious package was being investigated by police for several hours, according to BART officials.

Major delays were reported in all directions at 4:42 p.m. by the agency on Twitter.

BART spokesman Jim Allison said the station would stay closed as police investigated the package with no trains going through the station.

The station reopened around 7:50 p.m., but BART passengers were still experiencing up to 10-minute delays.

Trains were not allowed to stop at the station and were not allowed to pass through which caused delays systemwide.

KRON4’s Daniel Villareal went to the Bay Point BART station which was experiencing major delays because of the police investigation in Hayward.


AC Transit provided service to those who were impacted by the disruption.

Police were on the scene investigating. If you have parked your car at the station, you will still be able to get your car while the station is closed.

BART officials have not released details about the suspicious package that caused the station to close.
