A trans Lyft driver was viciously attacked by a customer. Now she's too afraid to work.

A Lyft driver in Oregon said she’s too afraid to do her job after a transphobic customer attacker her.

Marla Standing-Owl became a Lyft driver last year after she says she lost her previous job to transphobic discrimination.

This past Friday night she picked up a man who she believed was intoxicated at a hotel in downtown Portland.

“His speech was highly slurred,” she said. “He could barely get in the car. He didn’t know where he was going.”

After about a mile, she said that he asked her to pull over. That’s when he attacked her.
