    Boston's transit system has reached a $1.5 billion, four-year contract with its carmen's union.

    The MBTA says the contract will save it $80 million dollars over the next four years and more than $750 million over the next 25 years.

    The agreement also reforms overtime and other work rules to lower MBTA costs, the transit system announced.
