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.
