Bicycle boxes at Toronto Pearson Airport?
Does anyone know if there's a place in Toronto Pearson Airport where I can get/buy a bike box to pack my touring bike for flying? I can get a free one at a bike shop in Toronto, but then it's going to be really hard to cycle to the airport...
Alternatively, has anyone had any positive experiences with shipping a bike somehow, rather than taking it on the plane? I'm done my touring trip, just heading home to Vancouver, so the bike doesn't need to arrive at the same time as me.
Google results haven't been too helpful on this one. Thanks in advance for any advice!
I have flown with my bicycle from Toronto Pearson several times. Sometimes the airline has sold me a box, other times a plastic bag for my bike.
Check with the airline you are flying with.

Or box your bike in the city, and then take the airport bus out there?
Greyhound courier is another way to go. I have sent two bikes with them, no damage and reasonable rates.
Thanks Acantor. When you used the plastic bag, did you need to disassemble the bike?
