About the station
Opened in 1900, the Paris Porte Maillot station was originally the Metro terminus for Line 1 and enabled trains to make a loop of the city without the need for reversing. It consisted of a waiting area, tracks and twin tunnels. The new Metro line undercuts this original structure, and the old station has been turned into a waiting area. New platforms were installed to take more modern trains, but never used. A long corridor now connects the old Paris Porte Maillot station with the Neuilly-Porte Maillot station of Paris’s RER rapid transit system.
Porte-Maillot is a gateway to the Bois de Boulogne and its entrance is close to the Avenue de la Grande Armee in central Paris. The Hertz Car Rental branch at Paris Porte Maillot is at nearby 27 Rue St Ferdinand.
