— The morning commute in Durham was re-routed for some after a package was found at the park-and-ride platform at the Regional Transit Center around 8 a.m.

Instead, passengers got on and off buses at the Sheraton Imperial at 4700 Emperor Blvd., about a half-mile away.

Just before 12:20 p.m., GoTriangle issued an all-clear for the area.

It wasn't clear where the package came from, but police said Tuesday that it was a suitcase that contained clothing and some other items, including an MP3 player with cords and a charger.
