The city of Inglewood has several methods of transportation and the city works hard to maintain a high level of public transportation. The city has a Senior Center's Van Service that offers monthly passes for the price of only 5 dollars. These vans allow for quick service and individualized care as drivers often only have one or two passengers at a time. The city also offers discounted bus passes for residents as well as taxi-coupons, which are subsidized by the county government.
<p>Drug Abuse Resistance Education, better known to most young school children as the D.A.R.E. program, is actually headquartered in Inglewood. The program was founded by Daryl Gates and its mission is to prevent the spread of drug use and gang activity, acting to stop the problem before it even starts. The DARE program trains local police officers to help them learn how to deal with youth who have drug issues. It also provides a ten week program to at-risk youth to help them to avoid the dangers of drugs.</p>
<p>The Southeast Symphony is a music group based out of Inglewood, California. The Southeast Symphony was founded in the late 1940s and since then it has served the community, teaching music classes to young students and also providing musicals and other shows several different times during the year.
