Rue Saint-Maur is a station on Paris Métro Line 3. The station opened on 19 October 1904 as part of the first section of line 3 between Père Lachaise and Villiers.

The Rue Saint-Maur is named after Saint Maurus, a disciple of Saint Benedict of Nursia, who is said to have saved Saint Placid from drowning. Until the early years of the 21st century the station was called Saint-Maur, but its name was changed to avoid confusion with stations on RER line A in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés in the southeastern suburbs of Paris.
