Today I decided to stop by Terminus Panama to try and get some 218XX pictures. Everything was going fine for the first 30 mins, until a supervisor came to see me. He said I needed to have permission from the RTL to take pictures. I told him I did not, as the buses are publicly funded and are operating for a public transit company. He didn't like my answer and then said I was not allowed to take pictures in the terminal because it is private property.
He said to call the RTL Customer Service. I did that in front of him, and was told by the person on the phone that I was in fact aloud to take pictures, so he left. About 30 minutes later, another supervisor arrived, this one was not as friendly as the first one. She was arrogant and aggressive. She proceeded to say the same things, not aloud to take pictures of the bus, I'm on private property, blah blah blah. She told me I have to leave or she will call the police to have me arrested for trespassing. I was then escorted by an RTM Security Guard to my car, and he followed my car until I left the parking lot.
I will be making a formal complaint in the next couple of days.
