I looked at the German example of the electronic_purses that is mentioned in
the Wiki and it was a chipped card that stores cash. As far as I know,
that's how the City of Ottawa cards work. I'm not sure if the City of Ottawa
cards are restricted to being used for parking or if there are plans to
expand them to be able to be used for other City of Ottawa services.

I've added one of these devices (976335024) to Ottawa and specified it
accepts coins, credit cards and electronic_purses. Annoyingly, they don't
seem to be rendered in Mapnik or Osmarender.
