Thanks for the info. That's great to know. You're right. They're not advertising it. I'm a New Yorker and this is the first I'm hearing of it.
I have the NY State Green EZ
I have the NY State Green EZ Pass on my Prius. FYI, the discounts ONLY apply to NY State Thruway tolls and the Port Authority bridges and tunnels, and only during off-peak hours for the B & T's. The other places that accept your EZ Pass do not offer the discounts. It's still worth it, hopefully. The GW bridge will only cost you $4 (not $6) off-peak with your green pass. Another word of caution: keep your eye on your EZ Pass statement. I used the GW bridge off-peak and was charged regular price. I had to call EZ Pass customer service and get credited for the overcharge. I'm waiting for my next statement to see if I actully got the credit and if they charge the correct amount next time I use the Bridge.
I have yet to notice another hybrid on the road with a Green Pass (Easy enough to tell. They are literally green.) Maybe they are still working out the glitches.

I had a regular EZpass for my Prius. When the Green Pass came about, I followed the directions on the NY State Thruway website and wrote a letter requesting one. They sent the letter back (twice) and I had to cancel my original pass and open a new account for the Green Pass. So...if you're applying for one, start with a new application so you don't waste any time.
Somebody at EZpass must have
Somebody at EZpass must have been jerking you around.
I just sent in my letter, with a photocopy of my registration enclosed, and they sent me the green ezpass in the mail.
No fuss, just one letter in the mail.
Sorry they screwed with you.

Thank you for sharing the information. As you said in the forum it is not advertised anywhere. My friends have Prius for last 3 years and they don't know about the clean pass sticker or the Green Tag. Can i get the discount on the Holland and lincoln Tunnel and Varrazona bridge and NJ turnpike. Or I have to call them to enroll in it.
