Google Fit app tracks driving as walking

I don't use my Pixel 6P's Fit app too often, but took a long walk across town with my wife on Saturday. I did not start a "New Activity", just let it run in the background. When we got to our destination, I checked to see how far we walked, and it seemed to record the distance just fine (we used my wife's iPhone to double check). But on the way home, we took the bus most of the way, then walked a 1/2 mile at the end. Not only did it record the entire return trip as a walk, but the map showed a direct, as the crow flies, line home, nothing like the circuitous route the bust drove. My old LG G4 never dad a problem telling driving from walking when automatically recording my day.
Any idea on how to fix this? My Location is set for High Accuracy.
