For the past few weeks, State Sen. Jim Gaughran has been spending quality time on the Long Island Rail Road, riding to and from local stations, talking to constituents on the platforms and trains and asking for their input on how the railroad’s service should be improved.

Since late April, Gaughran, a Democrat from Northport, has visited stations on both the Oyster Bay and Port Jefferson branches of the LIRR — the two rail lines that run through his Senate district — to solicit comments from his commuting constituents by way of a written transit survey, which asks them how often they take the train, the length of their commute and their overall satisfaction with the LIRR.
