Porte d'Auteuil is a métro station serving Line 10 (westbound only). It is situated in the 16th arrondissement.

History[edit]

The station opened on 30 September 1913 as part of the extension of line 8 from Beaugrenelle (now Charles Michels). On 29 July 1937, line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and the section of line 8 between La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and Porte d'Auteuil, including Porte d'Auteuil was transferred to line 10. Prior to 3 October 1980, when the line was extended to Boulogne - Jean Jaurès, trains ran on to Michel-Ange - Molitor to return to the east. The station is named after the Porte d'Auteuil, a gate in the nineteenth century Thiers wall of Paris, which was located in the district of Auteuil, which was mostly incorporated in the 16th arrondissement in 1860, with the remainder absorbed into the commune of Boulogne-Billancourt.
