What's New at Seman-Tov
As We Move into Winter - As you have seen since mid-October - our vehicles are being equipped with Zonar Tablets that are replacing the yellow wands we have been using for the past five years. We know that with change comes a level of confusion and frustration. As we become more familiar with the Tablets, you’ll find them more useful in many ways. The tablet has all the same function as the Wand for safety checks, Employee sign in /out and vehicle tracking. One main advantage when the system is fully operational, will be that route sheets and other documents can be sent from the office directly to each individual bus.

A reminder to all: We are driving a big yellow billboard with the name Seman Tov Inc. or P and Y on the side of it. Unfortunately, the general public doesn’t realize the many great things we do every day. However, everyone notices a rolling “Stop,” a bus going through an “amber” traffic light, someone going a little faster than usual on the Parkway to get to the next school on time, and, of course the roar of a diesel engine that sounds as though it’s going much faster than it actually is in a residential neighborhood.
PLEASE BE CONSCIOUS OF THE FACT THAT PEOPLE NOTICE SMALL INFRACTIONS MUCH MORE THAN THE CARE AND COMPASSION THAT PEOPLE IN THIS INDUSTRY EXHIBIT WITHOUT FANFARE EVERYDAY.
“The Man, The Myth, The Legend”
Morris is one of the few people capable of correlating the operation of 150 buses on 600 routes with over 200 employees from the computer attached to his shoulders. Morris’s well rounded abilities never ceases to amaze everyone who works around him on a daily basis. He is a true juggler who never seems to drop the ball.
Quietly thought of as the force behind the business. Though we don’t often see Leah in a bus these days, she is still capable of jumping in as needed. Leah handles a good deal of the behind the scenes paperwork for special trips billing and administrative functions. Leah obviously was there from the start and was tasked with handling the paperwork that bogs down every business, being on the road every day and raising a family. Needless to say she has done it all with little or no fanfare and kept things afloat for all these years.
Following in the footsteps of his father Cruz Loyo, Aldrin has been in charge of the maintenance of Seman Tov vehicles for twenty years. Aldrin is the reason the company is held in such high regard by each of the Motor Vehicle teams that have inspected our vehicles over the years. Generally, one of the first at the shop every morning till the afternoon and remains on call throughout the day and night. As an entrepreneur, in his “spare” time Aldrin oversees the operation of two personal businesses.
Miss Sharon has been a mainstay at Seman Tov long enough to have driven Yitzy, Yehuda and the rest of the Nagar children to and from school over thirty years ago. In the past every time it seems as though she was about to take a break, she’d bounce back in the seat and take on a whole new round of kids to transport. This time it appears Sharon has made the decision to finally step outof the driver’s seat. Everyone at Seman Tov wishes her good health and the best of everything going forward!
For the past 21 years Ana has been taking care of our precious cargo and working to make our drivers job easier and safer. Ana takes the time and effort to learn the routes as though she were the driver. If anyone has driven with her as a sub-driver, you know how important it is to have her aboard.
