The station was opened on 21 January 1937 on old Line 14, which was absorbed into 13 in 1976. It was the southern terminus of the line until its extension to Châtillon - Montrouge on 9 November 1976. In 2006, Paris Tramway Line 3 (now 3a) opened, with a stop at Porte de Vanves. It is named after the Porte de Vanves, a gate in the nineteenth century Thiers wall of Paris, which led to the town of Vanves.
