sorry for writing in english, but i know only few words in spanish.
During my 5 nights / 4 days in Panama City, i recorded GPX traces for few Metrobus routes, some of them too short or without description, but result is 9 relations in Openstreetmap. Apart from Albrook - Amador and Albrook - Esclusas de Miraflores route, all others are incomplete, covering only few routes from Albrook to El Carmen/Betania area.
Mibus have almost all routes on own website, but it is realy not user friendly and I am pretty sure it is also incomplete and outdated. I created at least one relation I can’t find on their website. You can also compare this name deducted from bus with name on Mibus website (though my name is maybe missing Estación La Cabima, I am realy not sure about this).
I was able to add few more bus stops and i will try to add some more comparing bus speeds from gpx and Bing imagery and memory (i am pretty sure about IDAAN and Policia Nacional positions). But right now, I am almost done. I will leave Metrobus network in Panama in this early Alpha state; we need some Panama City resident’s to make it better and useful. Somebody, who knows the city, is wiling to spend $0.25 for one ride, collecting gps traces and editing it all at home. And also create all that new roads for these routes.

Here is list of all routes:
Albrook – Esclusas de Miraflores (complete)
Albrook - Amador (complete)
Gran Estacion - Via España - Albrook
Tocumen - Via España - Albrook
Alcalde Díaz - Via España - Albrook - Directo (to Alcalde Díaz)
Alcalde Díaz - Via España - Albrook - Directo (to Albrook)
Alcalde Díaz - Via España - Estacion Marañón
Panamá Viejo - Ave. Balboa - Mercado de Mariscos
Los Andes - Via España - Albrook
There is a lot of work to do (but I am unable anymore from my chair in Slovakia):
- Create platform_exit_only and stop_exit_only for Albrook. No idea where, because for each arrival to Albrook, drivers stopped always on different place
- All platforms for Albrook and Estacion Marañón
- Stops and routes to/from Aeropuerto (Tocumen)
- Check routes after opening new metro; they are already different if you compare some of my routes with Mibus pdf’s (at least in Calidonia)
- brainstorm about tags used by me to describe relations
- and more
