    Three New Jersey cities are planning to launch a bike-share program this summer, officials announced Monday.
    Hoboken and Weehawken have already approved the plan, and Jersey City votes on it this week, officials said.

    The program is set to launch this summer with 800 bikes and 50 stations, operated by Bike and Roll, which runs similar programs in 60 cities.
    Each cruiser bike has seven gears, hand brakes, a kickstand, a bell and a basket.
    Users will have the option of daily, weekly and annual memberships. Officials did not disclose pricing information.
    Officials said the cities bear no cost for the program, which will be funded by sponsorships, advertising and user fees.
