Question: health app wrong step counting


I am using iPhone 6 32 GB, ios 11.1.2. I have noticed that when I travel in bus, my health app counts the steps invariably i.e. 17,000 or more steps , which is ruining my daily targets of walking and running. I travelled in bus today for 6 hours today in night and the app showed that I have climbed 36 floors, while I was just sitting idle in bus with no movement. Can you please check why this miscalculation happens?
