Sorry to say it fellas but photography of buses and subways has been ILLEGAL since 9-11. NYPD, who was a poster here is in the NYPD Police Academy and has brought up the question of photography in the Transit System. According to his instructors, fellow Police Officers, they stated that since 9-11, photography in the NYC Subway, Bus and Rail Systems has been ILLEGAL and a summons can be issued to any violators. The proof that this law has been actually updated is unknown and has to be looked up at the 1st possible free chance.
But some states have different policies than others and I assume that NJT (New Jersey) has what's called a Zero Tolerance Policy on photography in their system which basically means no photography is allowed under any circumstances. And that Zero Tolerance Policy is the reason WHY you got stopped.

Last time I checked, the Police weren't allowed to make laws. Only a Legislative body can do that; and they haven't.
