CAMDEN, Ala. (WKRG) — A ferry in Alabama just made history.

Gee’s Bend is the first all-electric vehicle ferry in America, ALDOT Mobile tweeted on Wednesday.

The ferry is under contract with the Alabama Department of Transportation and is operated by HMS Ferries.

Gee’s Bend returned to service this week after being converted from diesel to electric.

The ferry offers daily service across the Alabama River in Wilcox County.
