It's nice that this article in Finnish advises travellers to take the selection off from the trains in the Journey Planner App, but not in English, to show the correct substitution buses. Also on the same not, please make your systems capable of actually planning journeys with such exceptions. Showing the tiny disruption icon is not useful on the search results, when the cancelled rides are still shown as if there was nothing happening (+ the non-informative icon).
