There's the same kind of thing as the Pasmo card in Belgium. These are 
getting more and more common in different countries.
I've tagged these as public_transport_tickets as I thought that 
public_transport_plans could mean maps, but it probably means long term 
"ticket". After checking its use in Germany, France and Netherlands, I'm 
sure it doesn't mean maps.

I think public_transport_tickets and public_transport_plans should be 
combined, maybe under a different name. Both can be sold at the same 
And add the ability to specify if we can get a ticket, a card 
(rechargeable or not), a token, or if we can only recharge a card we 
already have.
