The presence of the digital industry is driving changes in the modes of public transportation from conventional to modern using online applications. The positive impact of the presence of the digital industry especially on line transportation for the community is the existence of new jobs and sources of income. But on the other hand, the presence of on line transportation also presents various problems. This study uses mixed methods with a qualitative main approach and supported by a quantitative approach. The results show that there are problems in social welfare and social protection for two-wheeled online transportation riders which caused by a legal vacuum in the status of the partnership pattern. Therefore, the researcher proposes a partnership agreement model involving the government as the party that has the right to determine the regulation, and in the agreement process requires a bargaining process so that the welfare of two-wheeled online transportation riders as informal sector workers can be fulfilled.
