Sisters & Friends Getaway


Homegirl CEO’s Team Up for Getaway

Stephanie E. Durrett, owner of SD Transit Inc., a bus passenger transportation company and Connie Portis host of Sisters & Sisters and Friends Facebook Friends are teaming up again for round trip transportation to Martha’s Vineyard from Pittsburgh. This is the second year Connie has engaged SD Transit stating that, “Chartering the bus makes it easier for those who want practically door-to-door service. Guests are able to board the bus in Pittsburgh and be transported to take the ferry over to Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard.”

In 2012, Stephanie at the introduction of Onyx Woman’s CEO, Ola Jackson, learned about and joined Sisters & Friends Getaway to Martha’s Vineyard.  Connie and Stephanie met for the first time and decided it would be a perfect fit to engage SD Transit for round trip transportation from Pittsburgh to Martha’s Vineyard.

In 2013 women traveled from Ohio, Erie and around the city to board an SD Transit’s Coach Bus, for travel to Sisters & Friends Getaway to Martha’s Vineyard. Joyce Ellis, the bus host made the trip fun and interactive. “Before you knew it we were there,” Joyce says. Snacks and breaks along the way make the trip much easier. The bus is equipped with movie screens and rest room facilities.

With times so tough and many having to forgo vacations, Sisters & Friends Getaway to Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect DSCF3900opportunity to experience a wonderful place while not spending a lot of money. Sisters and Friends enjoy exploring the island, workshops, clean air and vintage houses where sitting on the porch after a swim, line-dancing, or sampling another ice cream parlor, is a perfect interlude during a Sisters & Friends day. They enjoy Karaoke, eating out, shopping and touring the historic Oak Bluffs neighborhood. Best thing is women come alone or with friends and leave with new life-long connections.

This year SD Transit roundtrip transportation is September 7-14 and the all-inclusive rate is $745 for the bus and the week’s accommodation on the island. Women choosing alternative transportation have a second week to select from September 14-22 and travel by plane or on the east coast, the Peter Pan Bus.
