In the part of the route from Iļģuciems to the Railway Terminal Square, the tram will be replaced by bus 5T, which will run parallel to tram tracks.

When running in the direction of terminal „Iļģuciems”, bus 5T will stop at the temporary stop in Slokas Street next to Uzvaras Boulevard and at bus stop „A. Grīna Boulevard” (Slokas Street). In both directions, bus 5T will stop at stop „National Library”.
