Gwent Police have confirmed that a suspicious package was found at the station, not a wartime bomb as widely reported.
A spokesperson said: “At 12.29 today we received reports that a holdall had been left unsupervised at Caerphilly Bus Station.
“The bag was searched and did not contain anything suspicious.”
The station had previously been evacuated by police while a police dog handler attended.
Rail and bus services have resumed, but delays are expected due to the closure.
