There is a bus service between Kolkata and Dhaka and also between Dhaka and Agartala (just 98 km!). The existing road from Karimganj to the border post has recently been upgraded to a National Highway (NH 151) to facilitate border trading with the Sylhet side in Bangladesh. From Sylhet to the picturesqe Dawki (Meghalaya) it is just 40 odd kilometers and transportation is supposedly not a problem. Dawki to Shillong is just 90 km.
There seems to be some new development on this front:

GUWAHATI, June 6 – With improvement of relations between India and Bangladesh, a proposal to introduce bus service between Guwahati and Dhaka via Shillong is under serious consideration of the Government of India.
