TransAdelaide is promising there will not be delays to its suburban rail services today after a software malfunction caused problems yesterday.
Some services yesterday morning were delayed by up to half-an-hour.
New software on computers in TransAdelaide's train control centre showed that three trains had gone through stop signals.
The software is part of a $7 million upgrade of signal monitoring systems.
Secretary of the rail, tram and bus union Ray Hancox says the signals were actually green.
"The driver out in the field has seen a green signal rather than a red," he said.
The drivers have been cleared of any blame and will return to work.
TransAdelaide general manager Bill Watson says software suppliers are working on the issue.
"The problem that we've got is the information that's passing from the signal back to the train control centre," he said.
TransAdelaide will use its old system until the problems are fixed.
Transport Minister Pat Conlon has apologised for the problems.
Mr Conlon says the software appeared to be working properly on Sunday.
"Firstly, I apologise on behalf of TransAdelaide for the interruption to services - it was very disruptive for people," he said.
"What happened, a new system, software for the signalling had been tried for some months and I'm reliably advised it appeared to work in every aspect - the old system's about 28-years-old."
