BART workers will get a chance to earn bonuses under their labor agreement.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that under the new contract reached between BART management and its two biggest unions, BART agrees to pay its workers $500 for every one percent that commuter ridership exceeds projections.

The bonuses would be capped at $1,000 a year, each year of the four year contract.
