Actually they are paid the tickets if they have a reason to take a train or a bus. But they have to pay it from the CHF 8.00 pocket money if they take public transport just for fun. BTW, SBB stated this week, that they catch 780 ticketless passengers a day.
Slightly off topic but according to the SBB's average daily passenger numbers from 2011 that means that only 0.08% passengers are fare dodgers. Of course that only takes into those that are caught, but still not bad at all for a transport system where it's relatively easy to dodge fares.
