What Else Might a Visa Card Do?

Attendees of last week’s closing ceremonies of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, participated in two “firsts”: Participants who attended the first Youth Olympic Games and used Visa’s first all-in-one event ticket, transit and prepaid card.

Those who were awarded tickets to the opening and closing ceremonies in The Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organizing Committee’s April ballot received the card to use as their means of entry for the celebratory events.  The plastic card is more than a replacement for paper tickets; the Visa Prepaid card’s functions include the ability to make purchases at Visa merchants, and pay for trips on Singapore’s public transportation system as well.
