Can anyone explain by typing slowly and loudly how to successfully apply for a Green Pass?
I've had an EZ Pass for years. After reading the documentation, it appears you need to have the Thruway Plan in order to be eligible so I took care to add this to my account and then sent in a letter requesteing a Green Pass together with a copy of my registration.
I received a letter rejecting my request because my EZ Pass account "is with a toll autority that does not currently offer the Green Pass discount plan."
Turns out my EZ Pass is of the "MTA" variety and was solely based on my Manhattan address. There are apparently other varieties (or account types) for the NY State Thruway and for the PA of NY and NJ.
So it seems I need to apply for one of these other EZ Pass account types. So how does one do this? I went to the main EZ Pass site to sign up and could not find how to specifically apply for a Thruway or PA account (or for an MTA account, for that matter).
What am I missing? I drive all over hell -- between NYC and Eastern Long Island, to Philadelphia, and to upstate and New England. Do I want to apply for BOTH the PA and Thruway account types? Just one? Does it cost more to have one EZ Pass good for all 2 (or 3 accounts)? Did I miss the account type selection on the web site?
Thanks for your help!
