It works a bit different: whether you want to use a travel day is up to you; it does not depend on the mode of transport. You simply write down the date in the field on the pass. Then it's up to you to decide whether you just do a single train ride, travel all day long, or not travel at all (not recommended!).
If you don't use a travel day, you don't get any discounts anywhere. That's how the standard Swiss Travel Pass Flex works. To get discounts during non-travel days, you need the Combi variant of the pass: the Swiss Travel Pass Flex Combi.
It's explained on our pass page. In general, a Swiss Travel Pass for consecutive days works out easier and cheaper than a Swiss Travel Pass Flex, even if you don't travel a lot every day. You can do the math to find out if that applies to your plans as well.
