A new rail commuter advocacy group is using social media and the Internet to pressure lawmakers and Metro-North to fix problems as they arise.

James Cameron, who resigned from the Connecticut Commuter Rail Council because its focus was shifting to larger-focus issues rather than nitty-gritty issues, said the new group, Commuter Action Group, would give commuters a new voice.

“This is in no way a competitor to the council,” Cameron said Monday, when he also released a “Commuter Manifesto” empowering commuters. “I think we’re certainly meeting toward the same ends. I see this as a grass-roots, technology-based empowerment tool for commuter ... using the power of politics ... to allow commuters to hold them accountable for helping fix these problems.”
