This is separate from the "debit card" style of pre-paid cards (like a Suica card in Japan or a BART ticket in San Fran) that track money for individual fares. They are time based tickets that has unlimited use over a time (usually over a month) for a chosen route - so buying one is different than buying a single-use ticket.

There are only 75 of these .. ask the people who placed them in OSM for an answer as to what they mean by 'public_transport_plans".
