During the war, the Office of Defense Transportation ordered some changes to the B&MTCo. routing, such as the line from Keene to Peterboro was transferred to Granite Stages, later bought by Vermont Transit. After the war, the B&MTCo. transferred routes to other companies or discontinued routes. In 1952, the B&MTCo. became part of the Trailways Bus System, and a new headquarters was built in Cambridge, Mass.

Similar to the stories of the demise of the streetcars, the Boston & Maine Transportation Co. was losing its passengers to automobiles as highways were being improved. Unlike the B&MTCo.'s parent, it was much easier discontinuing a bus route than a rail line, and slowly the shorter routes disappeared, then longer ones. One creation from the discontinuance of bus service was the Concord Coach Lines, first operating the city lines of Concord as well as other longer distance runs to the south. Concord Coach Lines today is now Concord Trailways, which operates buses between Boston and Portland.
The next eight picture below are of the Boston & Maine Transportation Company.

[1167] Denver-Boulder Bus Company Aerocoach photos by Don James, Jr., the grandson of I.B. James, one of the five "founding fathers" who came up with the "National Trailways System" idea in 1935.

[1168] In the attached 1950's photo, Don James, Sr, owner of Denver-Boulder Bus Company, is the third person from the right. My best guess is---and I doubt if Don, Jr, would know---this coach was probably one of the FIVE "Glass-Top" Aerocoaches purchased by Burlington Trailways in 1948.....the James family had close ties to Burlington for years and I.B. had at one time been BTCo President. The photo was taken in the gold mining town of Central City, CO, "The Richest Square Mile on Earth".
