Porte Maillot is a station on Paris Métro Line 1 and on the RER C. The station replaces another station of the same name, the original terminus of Line 1, which was demolished and moved in 1936. The name derives from a former gate to the Bois de Boulogne, whose name derives perhaps from maille, or croquet.
