Introduced in April 2005, the PAssion Card is a membership card for People’s Association (PA). Besides being just a membership or discount card, it helps to connect members of the public with their community by engaging them via a host of activities by Community Clubs (CCs) and other PA outlets.
The new PAssion ez-link Card was enhanced with Contactless ePurse Application (CEPAS) technology in November 2009, thus becoming Singapore’s first membership card in to be incorporated with the new ez-link purse that complies with the Singapore Standard for CEPAS.
